The Nike Air Force 1 React QS “Light Bone” drops on May 8 on Nike SNKRS.

The new Nike Air Force 1 React QS is reminiscent of the white Nike Air Force 1 WTR GTX launched last year.

The Air Force 1 React QS is one of the most recognizable models coming out of Nike’s D/MS/X team – the people responsible for modernizing and altering sneakers for more lifestyle wear. Staying true to neutral tones of past releases, the new Nike Air Force 1 React QS comes in a new white and icy colorway.

The sneaker comes with a full white upper made up of a suede and TPU textile mesh. Hints of grey is seen on the midfoot and heel cap, which helps define some of the panels on the sneaker. In a similar vein to the Nike Air Force 1 WTR GTX released last year, the white upper sits atop a blue icy outsole. From the bottom of the sneaker, you can look through the translucent outsole and see the orange React midsole encased in the sneaker.

Another interesting touch is the holographic branding seen on the tongue and heel tab. Each one switching from Nike Air to React branding as you look at it from different angles.

The Nike Air Force 1 React QS in this new colorway is dropping in the US on May 8 for US$120 (approx. S$169.89). No Singapore release date has been set, so stay tuned for more updates.
